    The Beast of ‘Busco, affectionately nicknamed Oscar, was an alleged giant alligator snapping turtle reported from Fulk Lake, near Churubusco, northern Indiana in the United States, during the late 1940s. The story briefly gained national attention as a result of the increasingly-dramatic attempts by the lake’s owner Gale Harris, and other locals, to capture the animal. Another giant turtle was reported from the state in 1950.

      Love the detail, love the design. Photos can’t really do it justice, it looks so much better in natural light. As a hoosier, I thought it was really cool to get my states cryptid featured.
